Creating an audio blog / podcast by using just the iPhone

iOS & iPadOS

Hi all,
I'd like to create my own audio blog or podcast by only using the iPhone and VoiceOver.
Are there any accessible apps / services available that would let me do that?
Cause I'd like to do that on the go I don't really want to cut or edit the audio. So I guess that for the recording part Apple's Voice Memos should do the job for me. But where to share it and how? Any recommendations?
I also thought about using my YouTube channel. But then I would have to hold the camera properly and I also would have to take light conditions into account. Any experiences you could share how difficult it is to create flogs when you're out of sight?
Thanks for your help!

Anchor will take care of everything but read the fine print carefully. There is also audioboom but that is not as good as it once was.

I have a YouTube channel, but it's all audios just a picture. I us
the app Backpack for this. It works very well. I save the fpe as a video and it makes it into an audio.

Hi everyone,
first at all, i like to record potcast too so, please, if someone has any ideas I would be interested too.
ON the other hand, and as I love potcast about everything arround tecnology world etc. please, if you record your potcast, tell us, and tell us too in which language you record them, in order to be able tu subscribe.
As last thing, youtube chanel I personally don't find a good idea, a for a blind person the fact to record a video I think that is more complicated and for me is easier record potcast, I can do it wverywhere, and I don't need to be in an appropriete place as it happens if I have to record a video. So, many thanks if somone has ideas, and please, if you create your audio blog, or potcast, tell me, please, if I undertand the language I will subscribe me of course.
Have a nice day and nice holidyas.

Anchor seems to be a great app. But Backpack makes a very good impression too. I think I'll use it to record stuff!

Hello. I’ve just started to use anchor for creating a podcast, and I love it. I do have a question though. For anyone using voiceover, have you found a way to successfully do audio trimming? I can access the main parts like the start and end audio trim points but is their something else I have to do?

Apart from Voice Memos, there are many third-party voice recording apps on the App Store. You can record your podcast and edit the same. But I guess your concern here is where to publish the podcasts. For that, you can use Apple's own Podcasts app; moreover, Stitcher ( is also a popular publisher of podcasts. There are other popular podcast publishers like








Pocket Casts
